I worked at MITRE as an intern

Pros

Intelligent, helpful, and understanding coworkers
Many other interns

Cons

The work given to many (but not all) interns was not particularly challenging/interesting. In many cases, it doesn't feel like you're making a significant contribution.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at MITRE full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    401K matching, free parking, onsite gym

    Cons

    - Management is deplorable
    - Promotions are almost non-existent
    - Salaries are lower than competition
    - Few opportunities for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Put your Department Heads, Resource, and Portfolio managers through mandatory 360 reviews and act on the results (i.e. fire bad managers).

    Quit recycling crummy people into "alternative" positions. If people aren't delivering -- fire them.

    I have been working at MITRE full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Awesome work/life balance. Benefits are tops in the industry. Always makes it into the Top 100 companies to work for. From day one, you are told to "do the right thing for the government and the American people."

    Cons

    You're at the risk of government budgets which are shrinking. The company is EXTREMELY selective. If you're not already at the top of your game, you may not get in.
